Having acquired the rights to the Kawaton my plan is to freshen it up and make it a runner. I have not worked on a triple since around 75 when i had the H1, but never went into the motor. I hear talk of seals being dated and the cases split to repair them. Will it hurt if the motor is started with bad seals. Will it smoke (how would you know). How does one tell if they need replacing? I'm a total noob to this motor and my question will bare that out. I believe this motor is still set up with the oil injection system and is hidden under the side bulbous pods under the tank. Hoof, you familiar enough with the 59 Manx to know if those tank additions are stock or something custom?
